    Windows 8 doesn't detect network after boot


    Hi,
    I am having a strange issue with my windows 8 pc as it sometimes doesn't detect any network present and i have to restart it again to get the network. The issue happens usually every time i boot. But restarting once solves it. Any help?

    I'm having a similar issue. If I am not connected to an Ethernet upon boot, I cannot get connectivity after plugging in my Ethernet, nor does the Device Manager detect my Gigabyte EP45-UD3P dual NIC's. I have to reboot with the Ethernet inserted before the OS loads. then all works as should be. Strange.

    I finally switched to win 7 due to the tons of bugs in win 8. Also, your gaming performance becomes shitty in win 8 which i actually experienced!
    i suggest you do the same

Pretty much says it all, upgrade from Win 7 was dropping connections but after I disabled allow the computer to turn off the wireless it doesn't drop the connection but I have to manually connect it every time I boot or logout/in. Netgear Rangemax Wireless-N Dual Band USB if that makes a difference.
